Nude by Nature Radiant Loose Powder Foundation
Nude by Nature is an Australian brand who are dedicated to providing makeup that gives you a beautiful, flawless look but without the toxins. They create an array of formulations in different finishes and shades to provide an uncompromised finish, and they cater for brownbeauties. The Nude by Nature Radiant Loose Powder Foundation is a multi-award winning mineral foundation, with sheer to medium coverage and SPF15. This lightweight formula with adjustable coverage, evens out the complexion, covers redness and pigmentation, conceals enlarged pores and controls oil production, while giving a skin like finish. It also has Kakadu Plum, alongside Jojoba Esters and Kaolin Clay.
This product has a wider shade range than the Concealer of 20 shades, with six said to be suitable for dark skin tones, two for each undertone. If you fall into the tan skin tone there are a potential five further shades said to be suitable with varying undertones. I received the shades C8 Chocolate (C meaning cool undertone) and N10 Toffee (neutral undertones), due to the cool undertone of C8, N10 was a better match for my warm/neutral undertones, albeit the shade was a tad dark for me.
I have worn the foundation on a number of occasions over the Perfecting Primer (review of that coming later), but also to lightly set other lightweight base products. I used the flawless brush as directed, by pressing it gently onto the mesh circle covering the Powder Foundation and buffed it into the skin. It gives a luminous finish, which although lasts well on my combination skin, does leave it more radiant than I would usually opt for, which isn’t too bad in the winter, but would not be my summer choice.
The foundation is great if you want a natural everyday look, with the addition of sun protection, I think it would best suit dry to normal skin types or those who like a glowy finish as the name of the foundation would suggest. If you have struggled to find mineral foundations for darker skin tones, then this is definitely an option to consider.
Also the Flawless Brush is gorgeous, big, densely packed and super soft. It comes packaged in a plastic tube with resealable lid, which I have kept as it’s great if you want to carry the brush around without getting makeup all over the inside of your handbag/makeup bag.
Nude by Nature Radiant Loose Powder Foundation is priced at £25.00 and the Flawless Brush is £21.
